Body Invaders
Panic Sex in America

"An influential anthology"
-Canadian Art

Body Invaders explores the fate of the body in the postmodern condition. Introduced by theses on power and sexuality, it proceeds to analyze the key theoretical contributions of Bataille, Foucault, Baudrillard and Kristeva, and ranges widely over the suppressions and obsessions which mark theoretical discourse and public policy in relation to sexual eroticism, fashion, reproduction and bodily decay.
